Recitas is author of the The Plan: Eliminating the Surprising "Healthy" Foods that are Making You...
I am on Recitas' three-day cleanse in hopes of identifying foods that contribute to my chronic muscle pain and interfere with weight loss. During the cleanse, one only eats low-reactive foods. Talk about a short list of foods. I thought the anti-candida diet was restrictive. Once I am finished with the cleanse, I will begin adding one food item per day in hopes of figuring out the trouble-makers.
The information in Recitas' book challenges beliefs about popular healthy foods (which are healthy) but not for everyone. Some of my favorites are on her list of reactive foods (e.g. asparagus, cauliflower, black beans, peppers).

No-Grain Flax Cereal
(makes three one-half cup servings)
Here's what you need:
1 cup whole flax seed
1/2 cup water
1 tsp. cinnamon, allspice and whatever else you choose
1/2 cup blueberries or cranberries
Here's what you do:
Add the flax, spices and water to a container. Place in the fridge to soak overnight. In the a.m., heat the oven to 275 degrees. Spread the flax in a thin layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 50-60 minutes until dry and crispy. During the last 10 minutes, add your seeds/nuts of choice.

When ready, break the flax into small pieces. Add to a bowl with coconut milk, stevia and blueberries (or combo of blueberries and cranberries). Note: It seems like a treat to eat cold cereal in a bowl. Yum!
